Behind Closed Doors
Behind Closed Doors
by Kimberla Lawson Roby
Edition: Paperback
Price: £8.87

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice read, 19 Dec 2011
This review is from: Behind Closed Doors (Paperback)
Great stroryline. I gave it 4 stars simply because some parts were not too clear and not in depth. i.e. **little spoiler** when Regina knew and was is even told that she is jealous of Karen and alsot hat she was colour-struck. I thought they should have went more in depth with that because I didn't understand why it was added into the storyline when they didn't give any background or resolving issues.

Overall, it was a nice read.

Recipe for Temptation (Kimani Romance)
Recipe for Temptation (Kimani Romance)
by Maureen Smith
Edition: Mass Market Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Great read. I enjoyed it : ), 19 Dec 2011
I am quite surprised there are no UK reviews for this book because it is a lovely one.

I recently started getting more into Kimani Romance books as they are very classic, interesting, romantic and more of what I enjoy reading. This book is just that and I really liked it because it was funny, very romantic and just an overall great book. Michael and Reese had amazing chemistry and it was one of those books that truly makes you feel like you would want to experience what they have. There were maybe one or two parts I thought were unrealistic but honestly, this is fiction and you can do anything with it so I was not too concerned about that. I also thought the love-making scenes were a little repetitive but I still thought it was creative.

Overall, I don't feel there is much to say as thought it was well-written, the characters and scenes were very well-developed and described, and I was locked the whole way through. I read this in about 24 hours, which is pretty good for me because I tend to get bored easily with many books.

I would recommend this book and I will be reading more from the author.

5.0 out of 5 stars Never Read A Book Like This., 28 Sep 2010
This review is from: White Lines (Paperback)
It's been about 2 years since I read this book. I don't know why I didn't review it then.

But that goes to show how much this book is a page turner.
I have never read anything like this in my life and it was a beautiful storyline from start to finish.

You know what I loved about this book? It was about 500 pages and it would make you think "why so long?"

But I am glad it was that long. Detail was amazing, spelling, grammar.. Everything was perfection.

Please pick up this book if you haven't.

If I had to recommend just one book to somebody it'll have to be this.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Interesting Read., 28 Sep 2010
I liked this book.

A lot.

It was a page turner and some parts were so funny.
However, there were some parts I thought were unrealistic.
But it is fiction to be fair, so hey.. Can't complain.
I would have liked a better ending but considering everything that went on in the book I guess it was a fair one.

Here's the description on the back cover since they never bother to post them here on Amazon as usual:

"Have you ever had everything you love snatched from your hands in the blink of an eye? Do you know what it's like to watch helplessly as those you cherish burn to a crisp? Have you ever heard a mournful cry for street justice and then realized that the only person left to heed the call was you?

Pearl Baines is a straight Harlem stunna. She and her twin sister, Diamond, are chased by some of the most notorious ballers in New York City. But while their father, ex-gangsta Irish Baines, devotes his life to rehabilitating young thugs, his sexy twin daughters fall hard for the glamour and glitter of strip clubs and street life. Unlike Diamond, though, Pearl is able to shake off the trappings of the hood in search of a better future. After graduating at the top of her class, Pearl becomes an FBI agent and plans to get as far away from the grime of Harlem as possible. But fate is cruel and the streets always get their due. On what should have been the happiest night of her life, Pearl's family perishes in a ball of merciless flames--flames intentionally set on the orders of Mookie Mason, her father's archenemy and the most ruthless gangsta in Harlem.

Crazed with grief, Pearl becomes unzipped. Hell-bent on retribution, she prepares for battle in New York's urban jungle. With the help of Menace, an ex-lover who once trampled all over her heart but was deeply loyal to Irish Baines, Pearl puts her FBI training and tactical skills to work in a murderous mission designed to do what her father wasn't able to: take down Mookie Mason, and his entire crew, one at a time.

2.0 out of 5 stars it wasnt all that, 18 Oct 2007
This review is from: Something New [DVD] (DVD)
believe me.....this movie is just like any other movie...nothing special.
you're better off watching "how stella got her groove back"....because its the same type of storyline...just the races that are different in this one and in how stella..... its just the AGE thats different. and how stella... is much better and much more interesting
i only watched this cuz it came up on my TV on Sky.
its a movie that you should watch when u dont have anything else to do
I PERSONALLY did not like it... its too predictable and is the same as any other story.
i gave it 2 stars only cuz i like Sanaa thats all....... and im glad the movie didnt hit the cinemas (doesnt even DESERVE IT)...cus i know i wouldve wanted to see it cuz of her!...wouldve wasted my money
***MAKE SURE u check out LOVE AND BASKETBALL if u havent....SEXY MOVIE!!! AND WAAAAAY better than this***

Edition: Paperback
Price: £8.71

5.0 out of 5 stars 22222 SHEISTY!! (4 and a half stars actually), 27 Sep 2007
this book was BETTER that the first...MORE FAST AND EXCITING...and it was a page turner...finished it in like 2 days!!...
shows you the true consequences of spreading your business and being sheisty to other people and also lets you know LIFE IS NOT FAIR....and people cheat death!!.....even though i loved this book and the editing was waay better than the 1st still had a few errors that couldnt be ignored.....which is all they need to improve and is y i gave it 4 and a half stars!!...ITS A REAL GOOD BOOK THOUGH!!! but if you dont read the 1st thinking you'll catch up...YOU WILL BE LOST cuz the author picks up right where it ended in the 1st (which is a very good thing i liked about it as well...she didnt waste any time) theres no point in reading the 2nd one first...i suggest you get them both at the same time cuz even if you read the 1st and ur finished you'll hate yourself 4 not getting the 2nd immediately...luckily i got them both at the same so it was better 4 me.

4.0 out of 5 stars Her thong was DEFINITELY on fire...believe me!!, 27 Sep 2007
when i picked this book up i was thinking....hmm the COVER looks good but i dunno...but anyway my cousin wanted 2 buy it anyway so she did and we decided to take turns.
I UNDERESTIMATED THIS BOOK is all i can tell u!!
DAMN....this book was really good!!..!!....dont worry im not going to tell you what happens!!...
anyway...this Saucy girl is just a shameless girl and she had so many opportunities in life to make it out of the ghetto but she was just so stupid!!...she used her body to get what she wanted...she was a crack addict...she was DUMB....and she used her childhood as an excuse to act the way she did and she was so annoying....i mean there were times when i just wanted to rip up this book cuz of the stupid decisions she made!!...
seems like your average "GHETTO" book huh??...WELL the difference is THIS GIRLS THONG WAS DEFINITELY ON FIRE AND IT BURNT HER ASS!!!
I HIGHLY RECCOMEND THIS definitely has a meaning!!...The teaches u alot about opportunities and choices and decisions. the only reason i gave it a 4 star was because i hated how it ended.....but most people loved how it ended...i just didnt like it.....i wouldve given it 4 and a half if that existed...apart from the end this is DEFINITELY a FIVE STAR book!!
it is REALLY GOOD!!....A MUST READ! WILL love it!!
